And Not Be Bitter

He sat in his motorized wheelchair.  I sat, by invitation, in his recliner.  He told me how his progressive disease  has recently robbed him of his ability to walk.  And how it has created numerous additional health issues.  All within a very short period of time.

I expressed sorrow at hearing this.

He smiled at me.  Joyfully.  He said “hey, it’s life, you have to stay humble and not be bitter”.
